Note: As of January 2019, Microsoft Virtual Academy has been retired.

I’ve been using Microsoft Virtual Academy for the past few weeks, and have gone through some of the courses there. As my professional focus is System Management, I have undertaken the courses in System Center Configuration Manager 2012 and Deploying Windows 7. They are actually pretty good, with links to TechNet articles, webcasts and presentations.

With Microsoft Virtual Academy you earn points for courses that you complete which gives you a higher ranking. Currently, I’m at Silver level, but I have no idea what that actually means or if I can benefit from it somehow 🙂

Just go to and login with your Windows Live ID, to start with the courses.
